This sketchbook is a collaboration between myself (Natalie Stevens) and my truly amazing art students: Jacqueline Gauvreau, Shaylene Gibbons, Valiyah Khurshid, Marissa de Boer and Sabrina Gill.
I am a high school art teacher in Renfrew, Ontario. The girls involved in this project are grade 11 and 12 art students at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. I have the pleasure of teaching some of the most thoughtful, creative and inspiring young people, and when it came to approaching this sketchbook, working with these girls seemed the perfect way for us to bring together our passions and talents.
The girls involved in this project are some of the most talented artists I have ever had the privilege of teaching. They are also and more importantly, kind, compassionate, thoughtful young women, and this is really reflected in their truly inspiring creative visions.
We decided to explore the theme of wanderer because this sketchbook is a collaborative effort, and our minds as artists all wander in different directions that allow us to express ourselves individually as artists. This was a wonderful experience for me to be able to work with such fantastic students. The students involved with this project were definitely such a great source of motivation for me as an artist. The amazing thing about this collaboration is that our individual passions and shared ideas can be reflected in one place. We hope you enjoy viewing it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
Thank you to Jacqueline, Shaylene, Valiyah, Marissa and Sabrina for their commitment and their talents, and for coming together to produce such a beautiful book!
